    This is an original pinback button issued by the Black Panther Party in support of Angela Davis' legal defense fund. It is a rare version with the photo of Davis wearing glasses. Davis was a leader of the Los Angeles chapter of the Black Panther Party. She was charged, in 1970, with the attempted prison escape of George Jackson, the leader of the Black Guerrilla Family, which was a subset group of the Black Panthers. Upon her capture, President Nixon labeled her a dangerous terrorist and demanded life-long incarceration. However, she was acquitted at trial and would go on to play a major role in the Civil Rights Movement. She is considered by many to be among the most important Black feminist leaders in American history. This button was made by Fox Buttons in 1970, in cooperation with the Black Panther Party, for the Black Panther Party Legal Defense Fund In Support of Angela Davis.
